PARADE OF ANIMALS
Years later, Kaka Baria, one of the companions, commented that through the animals taken with them in the New Life, Baba gave a fresh impetus to the work done for the animal kingdom in His past Advents. The white horse, according to Kaka, represented the work accomplished by Zoroaster and the cows that by Krishna. The donkeys were the medium for recharging the spiritual push given by Jesus and the camel that by Prophet Mohammad. Kaka, as Baba's dearest disciple and personal attendant, might have asked Baba about the significance of this "parade of animals" in the New Life or this might be entirely his own interpretation, I am not sure. Had Kaka told this to the villagers, some might have laughed at him and perhaps this explanation would have intrigued them all the more.
Leaving such queries apart, as soon as the villagers knew that this group was on its way to Hardwar, the famous place of pilgrimage in India, their minds and hearts would be filled with deep respect and devotion. They would ask if they could be of any help to them.
